Hendrix College Reviews

456 reviews
All Categories
Hendrix College has incredible academics, passionate professors, excellent extracurricular opportunities, a strong alumni network, and a friendly, yet competitive, atmosphere. There is a clear "Work Hard, Play Hard" mentality among the students here. Professors take personal interests in their students, and the rigorous course loads pay off in spades. Hendrix College can be way too stressful at times, but at the end of the day, there are plenty of resources to help those in need of stress relief. The student housing for underclassmen, however, is abysmal. The dorms are not in the best shape, but there are plans to renovate in the next 5 years. The student Quad is better, yet the walls are so thin you can hear the student above you sneezing. The apartments are better, but they are sometimes a crap-shoot. Overal, the summer opportunities, Odyssey Program, academics, decent level of financial help, and extremely liberal atmosphere makes the high price tag worth it.

The academics, teachers, and Odyssey department are wonderful. Everything else is either not good or terrible. Nothing is done right the first time and YOU have to fix the problem yourself. The housing department is unorganized and the main lady can be really rude/unhelpful. The housing isn't great and theres not enough of it (over half the Juniors get stuck in dorms and they're weird/strict about off-campus housing). The student life is fine: there's a good number of clubs and work/study opportunities, the cafeteria is alright (GREAT staff though), and the parties are fun. The campus did respond to two rape claims, and took serious action. BUT nothing that needs improving is paid attention to, the students over-all opinion of the school is really negative, the campus suck and no one respects them, and the hashtag #BeHendrix has been turned into a way to highlight the bad qualities of the school.
I love Hendrix. I am a current freshman here and I have loved every moment. Orientation week makes you feel so welcome in a new environment, there's so much to do on and off campus! You will meet people of all walks of life so you don't have to worry about fitting in because you will surely find your place here. The academics are wonderful. I have not met a teacher that does not love their field of study and what they do. If you ever need help, office hours are held almost daily and most teachers will even give you their phone number in case you need to call them to ask a question. T The cafeteria staff is amazing and ultra-kind. They make an effort to learn your name and ask you about your day. Birthdays are a huge deal at Hendrix. We have a birthday song, the lunch staff comes out with a cake, and your friends throw you into the fountain (no matter the weather). Life at Hendrix is never dull and there's a place for everyone.
